Irish Derby 2021 Tip
Timeform: “HIGH DEFINITION looked a colt of rare promise when going unbeaten in 2020 and can confirm himself a top-class colt now he gets the chance to tackle 1m4f and give Aidan O’Brien a fourth win in the past five runnings. Hurricane Lane didn’t look at ease at Epsom yet still finished third to stable-companion Adayar so is sure to be on the premises, with Mac Swiney and Van Gogh right in the mix too.”
